have learnt a lot about love over time by look­ing at my par­ents. They do not al­ways see ev­ery­thing eye to eye, but I know for sure that they love each other. As I have pre­pared many edi­tions of MAXXbrides, I re­al­ize that what’s most im­por­tant for a wed­ding is never the party. Yes, you do want that spe­cial mo­ment when you both start the first day of the rest of your life to­gether to be un­for­get­table but what’s most im­por­tant is the life that you are go­ing to have to­gether as hus­band and wife. To be there for each other in ‘sick­ness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in good times and in bad, till death do you part.’ I have learnt by ob­serv­ing my par­ents that what mat­ters the most is find­ing some­one who will stand by your side, who will pick you up when you are down, who will be your strength when you are weak, who will al­ways be­lieve in you even when you do not be­lieve in your­self.

An­other thing that I have learnt is that it takes an army to pre­pare a wed­ding, so let’s get the prepa­ra­tions started. This edi­tion is packed with ideas, in­spi­ra­tion, and tips to turn your wed­ding dream into re­al­ity.

A per­fect wed­ding is ev­ery­one’s dream, but ev­ery­one has their ideas about what their dream wed­ding should be. Some peo­ple might want an in­ti­mate af­fair with rel­a­tives and close friends, while oth­ers may dream of an ex­trav­a­gant party to cel­e­brate their spe­cial day. When it comes to pre­par­ing for your per­fect wed­ding choos­ing the right venue plays an im­por­tant role. In this edi­tion, we take a look at some of the best venues around, from lux­u­ri­ous five-star ho­tel ball­rooms in big cities in In­done­sia to ro­man­tic wed­ding chapels in some of the world’s most ro­man­tic is­lands.

Un­der­stand­ing that choos­ing the per­fect chapel goes a long way to­wards cre­at­ing that ro­man­tic wed­ding of your dreams, we tra­verse the coun­try in search of “Chapels of Love.” Sweet mem­o­ries are meant to be kept in your heart and beau­ti­ful frames. “Cap­ture the Best Mo­ment” and let the world see the beauty of your love.

Af­ter spend­ing months plan­ning the per­fect wed­ding, it is all over in a few hours. Now it’s time to re­lax and en­joy your first days as a cou­ple be­fore real life in­trudes. The only thing bet­ter than a per­fect wed­ding is a per­fect hon­ey­moon, a time to lux­u­ri­ate in the new­ness of cou­ple­dom. Need­less to say, a hon­ey­moon is also the per­fect ex­cuse to em­bark on the hol­i­day of your life. Just like a wed­ding, per­fect hon­ey­moons don’t just hap­pen; it has to be planned care­fully. If you need a lit­tle help, “Just the Two of Us” sec­tion is filled with gor­geous hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tions.

As flower blos­soms with hope anew, I wish you the same in your mar­ried life – a fresh start to eter­nal bliss, side by side with the one you love.

En­joy! Me­lani
